How long should I stay in LA?
I plan on visiting in the near future, probably during September-October and I already have a lot planned. I plan on spending a full day in Hollywood alone, but how long will it take to visit these sites as well:
Griffith Park (including Griffith Observatory)
Not to mention a visit to a beach; I’m thinking Zuma beach but if you have better options please say. I want to go surfing but I’m a beginner so please give me your opinion. Thanks in advance.
How long can you afford to stay?
Huntington Library: Half to full day
Robertson Blvd: 2+ hours
Griffith Park: Observatory, hike to Mt. Hollywood, Travel Town, Autry Museum, Zoo, Fern Dell, figure a day.
Huntington Beach is better for surf lessons, IMO.
There are literally hundreds of things to do here in LA. Here is my list of “must sees”. Visit as many as you have time for:
Disneyland: The Happiest Place on Earth. Half a billion visitors can’t be wrong. #1 Destination.
Universal Studios: A theme park that grew out of a studio tour. #2 Destination.
Even if you don’t visit Disneyland or Universal Studios Tour, Downtown Disney District and Universal City Walk are very fun places to visit for shopping and eating. And they’re free to visit. If you’re adventurous, try the indoor skydiving (www.iflyhollywood.com). It’s a blast!
Hollywood: Enjoy the Walk of Fame, Entertainment Museum, Chinese Theatre and more. The Hollywood & Highland complex has lots of shops and restaurants, and the Kodak Theater. The El Capitan theater, right across the street, is where Disney shows their movies. And the Hollywood Bowl is a GREAT place to listen to concerts outdoors.
Olvera Street/Union Station: Olvera Street is the birthplace of LA, and it emphasizes our Mexican heritage.
Rodeo Drive, 90210: Packed with exclusive shops, full of gawkers. They all came to enjoy the excess. Free, unless you intend to buy something.
Venice Beach: Here you’ll find Muscle Beach, street performers and tacky shops galore. Fun, VERY interesting, but I avoid it after dark, when it gets a little TOO interesting for my taste.
Santa Monica: Beach and Pier: Great beach scene and a classic seaside amusement park, complete with antique carousel that has been in a lot of TV and movies. After visiting the pier, you can ride a bike south a couple miles to Venice Beach.
Farmers Market and The Grove – A new shopping complex right next to a Los Angeles landmark, It is right next to CBS. They are currently shooting “Extra” here, M-F 9:00-2:00, so stop by and you might see a celebrity.
Griffith Park – Home of the Los Angeles Zoo, Griffith Park Observatory, Travel Town, the Greek Theatre, and Gene Autry Museum of Western Heritage.
Hike to the Hollywood sign: http://www.hollywoodsigntrip.com
Getty Museum – The Getty’s architecture is so beautiful that it keeps me fascinated. No matter whether you like their art, architecture, or view better, the Getty is sure to please. Free.
Attend a TV taping – You can get free tickets at audiencesunlimited.com, tvtix.com, or see the booth at Universal City walk. It’s very interesting to see a show being taped. The most popular, by far, is the Tonight show.
Places to eat:
In-N-Out Burger: Multiple locations, best burger in LA, ask anyone.
Pink’s Hot Dogs: 709 N. La Brea, just north of Melrose. You might even see a celebrity. Maybe.
Tommy’s Chili Burgers: Look for the shack, an LA tradition. The original location is at Beverly & Rampart, a couple miles west of downtown.
Canter’s Deli: 419 N. Fairfax, between Beverly & Melrose. Near CBS, you might spot a celebrity.
Phillippe’s: 1001 N. Alameda. Great roast beef sandwiches. Near Union Station and Olvera Street.
Tito’s Taco’s: Voted best tacos in LA, even though it’s in Culver City. King Taco is a good alternate if you can deal with East LA.
The Pantry: Corner of Figueroa and 9th, downtown. Huge portions, they never close, GREAT steak and eggs.
Medieval Times and/or Pirate’s Dinner Adventure: Dinner and an adventure show, both are on Beach Blvd in Buena Park, you get to eat with your hands.
Places to Stay:
Since LA is so spread out, there is no single place that is close to EVERYTHING. Most people who come here tend to stay in Hollywood, Santa Monica, or Anaheim. In Hollywood, I recommend the Orchid Suites, Hollywood Celebrity Hotel, or Hollywood Heights (formerly Holiday Inn Walk of Fame), all near Hollywood and Highland. In Santa Monica, the Holiday Inn Santa Monica is close to the pier and reasonably priced. In Anaheim, I recommend the Howard Johnson (HoJo) Anaheim, and the Candy Cane Inn. There is also a nice place in Burbank called the Best Western Media Center, very close to Warner, NBC, and Universal Studios.
Places to Shop:
Third Street Promenade, Santa Monica
The Grove, Los Angeles
Americana @ Brand, Glendale
Beverly Center, Los Angeles
Citadel Outlets, Commerce
Brea Mall, Brea
The Block at Orange, Orange
South Coast Plaza, Costa Mesa
Fashion Island, Newport Beach
Santee Alley, Los Angeles

Okay, I need help estimating the price for a travel package to Rome, Italy?
Alright so for my science project I have to do a travel brochure for a certain city, with particular emphasis on the climate and biome that it’s in. Well anyways I also need to develop a package deal for costumers including price, transportation, accomodation, meals etc. So could someone please tell me an estimated price for say, two or three weeks including all that stuff listed above?
Any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks.
It would cost approximately 1,900.50 – 2,632.50 per adult to travel from a US city such as Philadelphia PA to Rome, Italy.
you could base your package deal off of per made tours that can be found on sites such as explorica.
Once in Rome, you could plan things like a Rome city walk ( Reviving your spirits with a walk past Rome’s most beautiful and unusual Baroque fountains. At the foot of the Spanish Steps, elegant cafes once favored by visiting Brits and Americans surround the central fountain. The water pressure there was so low that the artist had to sink the fountain into the ground to get any water going through it, so he went ahead and designed the fountain to look like a sinking ship. There’s no shortage of water pressure at the nearby Trevi Fountain, a Baroque extravagance designed by master sculptor Bernini. At the Pantheon they would see the largest concrete dome ever constructed. An oculus, or hole, in the dome lets sunlight into the beautiful temple, dedicated to all the gods.) , Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, Piazza Navona, Sistine Chapel visit, St. Peter’s Basilica visit, Colosseum visit, Forum Romanum visit, Piazza Venezia.
Package deals generally include a tour guide type of thing which is what i described above.
to stay at a hotel such as The Grand Hotel Olympic the approx. cost would be 1003,1 Euro in the bed and breakfast for a two week period. That specific Hotel is a beautiful Papal palace in the heart of Rome. This would attract tourist.
As for meals, since breakgast is included in the hotel stay all you worry about is lunch and dinner. Cafe life is something you will want to experience in Rome, so that would be there options for lunch.
For diner you could offer resevations at some of Romes top restaurant such as Agata e Romeo, Checchino dal 1887, ot the Colline Emiliane.
Hope those ideas and figures help:]

How do Juventus fans treat other fans that speak English?
I know Juve fans hate anyone from England, but if you’re American and you’re at a home game, will you be treated with disrespect? I’ve heard that the English in Italy is pretty bad and was also wondering if they can usually tell the difference between Americans and English peoples.
Huh? In Milan, Roma, venice, and all the big cities mostly all the people know english. In Torino, not so much. It will be very hard for you to find a english speaker in Torino outside your hotel, let alone in the juve stadium. And no, we do not hate everyone from England, we hate liverpool, becasue of the Heysel Stadium disaster.
